Fresh off another Super Bowl win, the Patriots are approaching the offseason with an uncharacteristic aggressiveness. The Pats have largely built their 16-year dynasty by drafting well, knowing when to flip high-priced veterans, and accumulating draft picks before it was cool. (Having arguably the greatest quarterback and head coach of all time goes without saying.) New England has certainly dipped its toes into the free agency waters in the past, but this year it dove in headfirst, even at the expense of its draft capital. What gives? It’s all about timing.
